The project will look at Turkey’s growing role as a drone exporting power of technology. From Ukrainian resistance to Azerbaijan’s success in the recent Nagorno-Karabakh in 2020, Turkish drones play an essential role for European security and beyond as well as for Turkish foreign policy. The project team will investigate the following question:  What role does military technology play in Turkey’s foreign policy? What implications does Turkey’s cutting-edge military technology have in terms of the country’s regional and international security ambitions? The project also seeks to understand what options NATO has to regulate military technology in legal and normative terms within a member state, whose drone products are getting increasing attention from other NATO/EU countries, such as Poland.
